20,000 OFWs Receive P20K Balik-Pinas Balik-Hanapbuhay Program Of OWWA

“The essence of Balik-Pinas, Balik-Hanapbuhay is to teach OFWs to be their ‘own bosses’ hence teach them the value of “self-reliance”, and, eventually, “self-esteem”. Since the businesses will be their own, they should be able to sustain the ‘interest’ to make it as their means of livelihood thus making the most out of the revolving capital. Hopefully, they are able to change their own transformation from being OFWs, into entrepreneurs,” OWWA Administrator Hans Leo J. Cacdac said.
Target beneficiaries of the Program are returning OWWA members, active or non-active who were displaced by hostilities or wars/political conflicts, policy reforms or changes by host governments; victims of illegal recruitment or human trafficking or other distressful situations; Distressed wards at the Migrant Workers and Overseas Filipinos Resource Centers who are due for repatriation; and OWWA-members who were employed by foreign employers which suffered with financial difficulties due to economic conditions.
